The Classical! The Classical!

1975.  The spiritual equivalent of mainframe computers, power station control panels, reel-to-reel tape spools, banks of flashing lights, switches etc.  In an alternative universe there are people tapping away at miniturised, desktop versions of the above, sending messages to each other through some sound based, pipelines-made-of-vibrating-air version of the web.

Model World a Found Object

A few years back I uploaded a post onto Found Objects about the 1970s BBC series Model World and the accompanying Book, which I lost many many years ago. After searching numerous car boot sales and old book shops I finally have found a copy of the BBC Model World book, with all the model plans intact. Which goes to show if you keep on rummaging and searching, that lost old object can become a found object.  Right now I am a very happy chap.
